London Korean Film Night: The King of Jokgu (2013)

5500

Man-seob (An Jae-hong) used to be the “king of Jokgu” (a fusion of football and volleyball). He was infamous for his unstoppable foot spike whilst serving in the army. He returns to school after completing his military service only to find that the jJokgu court has been removed. He desperately tries to find a way to reconstruct the court by speaking to the university chancellor and collecting petition signatures but discovers that no one cares. Everyone is too preoccupied with finding a job to worry about the missing jokgu court, all sense of romantic or fun notions has vanished. Man-seob meets Anna (Hwang Seung-eon), the school queen, with whom he falls in love with at first sight. To win her heart, he relies on what he does best, thus looks to organise a jJokgu championship…
